However, some insiders believe the scale of the reshoots is significant, explaining: ‘They’re here until the end of the year. That’s like a whole other movie.’ 

Recently speaking about the reshoots on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’, Cumberbatch said: ‘Like everything with Marvel, it comes in fresh, pretty much, most mornings. It’s really exciting and the film is shaping up to be something special.’

Meanwhile, Benedict previously revealed he wants his acting projects to be able to justify spending time away from his wife Sophie Hunter and their sons Christopher Carlton, six, Hal Auden, four, and Finn, two.

Speaking to Esquire magazine, he added: ‘I mean… I like a challenge. I really enjoy my work.

‘When I do work, I want to work hard. It has to be worth leaving my family and home for. To make them… Oh, this sounds weird but I guess to validate me not being there.

‘And if I can get away with a new skill and call it work, lucky me, you know? That saves me a few night classes or, you know, time I don’t have.’
